Cattleyas

Cattleyas, the royalty of the orchid family, are native to the slopes of the Andes in South America. On the mountain slopes they have moderate days and cool nights, so they appreciate a temperature drop in the evening. They are comfortable at temperatures as low as 55 degrees at night, with days in the 70's or higher. They need bright light (not full sun) to flower. They must have good drainage, and like to dry a bit between waterings. Fertilize lightly when they are in active growth. Repot in a well draining mix, like our Cypress blends, when they have outgrown the pot or the mix has broken down (every two or three years).

Please refer to individual items for time expected until first blooming. Many of our offerings are young plants that will need to be grown to flowering size.  Unless otherwise stated in the description, items listed are not sent in spike, bud or bloom.

    Blc. Spring Dawn 'Top Row'

    An oldie but a goodie from the Rod McLellan Company.  This hard to find clone was originally a cut flower producer but in more recent years has found a home in collections as a gorgeous fall flowering lavender.  Large, richly colored blooms with a smooth texture appear above strong, upright foliage.  Very fragrant and has shown good potential as a breeding parent.  

    Very nice plants in 2.5" pots.
